was director of the fbi before he became the administrator. the tsa and mr. was a vacant position. there was an act did -- activity in there. it took them a while. when they got somebody in there, mr. pistol, everybody agreed he was a great man for the job, and he has made his goal to try to make tsa smarter. as a man who came on board at the fbi and saw the intelligence world grow after 9/11, he wanted to do the same with tsa and have them be a little bit leaner, smarter, and a manifestation of that is the new trust it traveler initiative. if you file on time and they know your history, you're not a terrorist, the odds are. they're using common sense in applying a trusted traveler system so they can focus their resources of people they know less about. host: the head of the tsa made a comment last month, talking about the type of terrorist threat that concerns him the most.

, from the f.b.i., and from the administration discussing this very question. gathering all the information we possibly can, making sure we have the facts before we make a quick judgment about the role of libya, the role of terrorists and what we've seen to date. it's a response by the libyan government, even the firing of one of their top officials who made an inappropriate remark relative to this attack. so, in conclusion, madam president, i encourage my colleagues to pause and look at the larger picture when it comes to foreign aid. cutting off aid and disengaging from these countries is exactly what the perpetrators of these attacks and protesters are trying to achieve. i do not know if supporting the governments in this volatile region in this revolutionary movement will bring us the results we so urgently need. but if we are to review thoroughly the tools available to us -- and i'm convinced that we must -- we should not begin by throwing out the tools that we have. we need to sharpen those tools and better define their use but not discard them prematurely. madam presi
has ruled. in some overseas news this morning, this from the washington post, the fbi has arrived in libya to probe the deaths of americans at the embassy. secretary of state hillary clinton said thursday -- also, in overseas news, this from the wall street journal, that the u.s. will curb its joint afghan operation. accompanying that story is a graphic showing some of the attacks from afghan forces that are working with the u.s. the headline is "and friendly friendly attacks." 51 deaths so far this year. and on mitt romney's comments. we are talking to republicans in this first segment. ray is from buffalo, new york. caller: good morning. i believe c-span has to do something. i have been with c-span 20 years listening. this is the first time i have called. on the republican line is democrats and on our independent line is democrats. the individual who said he was a teamster, is not a republican. he is worried about his penchant. what are you supposed to do as an american, pay for his pension? host: what about the state of the romney campaign? caller: i think the press is in full
-- >> this benghazi story by the way is a huge story. right now dee dee myers the fbi won't even go into benghazi because it is so dangerous which leads you to wonder why they didn't listen to warnings before the attack and before our u.s. ambassador was killed. this is one of those issues and i think charles krauthammer said it perfectly today in "the washington post" that if mitt romney actually knew how to put forth an argument. >> right. >> he could really be grabbing attention. >> one of the problems was he jumped out ahead of this and politicized it in the hours immediately after the attack which discredited him in the media term as a spokesman for the other side. >> it was -- krauthammer said he could have done it so much better. >> and established himself as an alternative voice. he didn't do that and hasn't been able to do that. as a press secretary it is a very uncomfortable position. >> you get elements of al qaeda, you get leon panetta saying it's not al qaeda. this is an absolute mess. and it shows real negligence on the administration's part. >> joe, listen. this also tells you a lo
, is a california based solar panel manufacturer that not only went bankrupt but was raided by the f.b.i. a week later and they lost almost a half billion dollars. my colleagues, this bill was systematically put together carefully. it will phase out the department of energy's grossly mismanaged loan guarantee program by simply stopping d.o.e. from issuing any loan guarantees for applications submitted after december 31, 2011. but for those applications submitted prior to december, 2011, cut off date, the legislation allows them to remain eligible to receive a guarantee but subjects them to tougher, tougher scrutiny. and provides taxpayers strong new protections, including, let me outline these four basic protections, forbidding the subordination of u.s. taxpayer dollars at any time to private investors. number two, requiring the department of energy to submit to congress that temperatures report that details the specifics of any new loan program. which is going to be guaranteed by the taxpayers. requiring the department of energy to consult with treasury prior to any restructuring of a guarantee
of the government. transportation, security, f.b.i., education, scientific research, food testing. we know we know that's not going to happen. the larger point is this. in terms of deficit reduction, the ryan plan -- there's no other way to state it -- a fraud. this should come as no surprise. after all, congressman ryan supported the bush policies that got us into this deep fiscal hole in the first place. from the bush tax cut to two unfunded wars to the paid-for creation of medicare part-d, congressman ryan's fingerprints are all easer th over the big-sg bush policies. ryan voted against the simpson-bowles framework. when paul ryan had a chance to walk the walk on deficit reduction, he joined all the other house republicans on the commission in voting down the report. he urged speaker boehner to abandon the grand bargain talks with president obama. "the new york times" reported in 2011, "ryan appealed to representative cantor to cut off negotiations between the speaker and the white house because he didn't feel the terms of the emerging agreement adhered strictly enough to his conservative princ

[crowd boos] and they are negotiating with a dictator who is shoveling cocaine into this country like crazy. i guess that is their central american strategy. they tell us that employment rates are great. and that they are it used to take one. the opportunity today are so proud of is a low end, low-wage jobs. there is no major city in america where you cannot see men and public lots holding signs that say "i will work for food." my friends, we are at a crucial time in american history. under this administration we have devoted our resources into making this country in military philosophy. we have let our economic lines fall into disrepair. the debt of this nation is greater than it has ever been in our history. in lessht a war of war las than what the republicans have built up in the past eight years. it is like that brother in law who drives the flashy new car but he is always borrowing money from you to make the payment. let's take what they're proudest of, and their stand
, high-ranking member of the f.b.i., director of national intelligence, general clapper and the vice chairman of the joint chiefs of staff to tell us ostensibly what happened in the tragic death of christopher -- ambassador christopher stevens and three other brave americans. so we gathered down in the secret room, which everybody turns in their phones and blackberries, and we went in and listened to basically a description of america's military disposition in that part of the world, something which certainly does not warrant a super secret briefing. but more importantly than that, when the secretary and the others were asked exactly what happened, what happened here, what caused this tragedy? what was the sequence of events? in fact, it was senators, the ranking member of the intelligence committee, what happened? the answer was, well, that's still an ongoing investigation, and we can't tell you anything. we were supposed to be down there to hear what happened, to hear the administration's version of events of what happened. we were told nothing. we were told absolutely nothing. and
